MUSC Action in SUPPORT of the Justice in Policing Act 2020
Tuesday, June 16, 2020
Overall the Justice in Policing Act (JIPA) addresses most of the policies that MUSC has been advocating for since its inception. The Act would establish national standards for training and operation of police departments that would be mandated at the federal level and uses the power of funding to encourage adoption of the same standards at the state and local level. It addresses the systematic racism and bias that affects how our Black boys and men are treated by law enforcement and puts in place substantive measures for better data collection and clearer guidelines for effective prosecution.
